We're so excited to be holding a 6-hour in-person workshop with Monica Canducci.

Whether you're a manual therapist, movement or performing arts instructor, or a holistic or somatic therapist, Move in Mind™ will help your clients or students improve their performance and integrate your work more effectively.
Move in Mind™ is a method aimed at increasing proprioceptive awareness, improving movement coordination and self-regulation, and achieving excellence in any kind of performance. This approach utilizes, mental imagery, word choice, and simple movements to help individuals develop functional motor patterns and postural habits.
The method itself is rooted in the principles of Structural Integration and Beamish Bodymind Balancing®. This method is deeply rooted in science as it was developed by Monica Canducci with support from her husband neuropsychologist, Davide Pierini.
This 6-hour workshop will give you the chance to experience the method firsthand. You'll learn about the history, foundations, and applications of this method as well as get the opportunity to practice some of the Move in Mind™ principles and basics. Students will be led through the movements by Monica, and also get the chance to split into pairs and practice the application of this method. At the end of this workshop, you'll be able to take home some simple movements and exercises to integrate into your practice to help your clients work with gravity and develop functional motor patterns.
